Browns re-sign wide receiver Josh Gordon on exclusive rights free-agent tender

Josh Gordon signed to exclusive rights free agent contract

The team announced on Monday morning that Gordon and three other exclusive-rights free agents have agreed to terms. Gordon returned to the team last season following National Football League suspensions and a rehab stay. There's a chance the Browns could lock him up to a long-term deal if he's able to stay on the field and out of trouble this upcoming season. Gordon led the league in receiving yards in 2012 but has played in just 24 games over the next five seasons.

Josh Gordon formally signed his exclusive rights free agent contract with the Cleveland Browns.

A potential pass-catching option when not suspended, Gordon returned to action in 2017 after missing all of 2015 and 2016 due to his latest suspension under the substance-abuse policy. The wideout will be a free agent after the 2018 season.

Gordon has cost himself multi-million dollar contracts because of his addictions to drugs and alcohol.

Gordon was a rookie in 2012, but he has been suspended so often the last four years because of National Football League suspensions for substance abuse he has not played three seasons. Landry scored nine touchdowns last season.
